Morgan was asked if she expects WWE to continue pushing young Superstars like herself and Theory.
“I hope so,” Morgan responded. “I really do hope so, because I read something on the Internet a couple of days ago – I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I’m the first WWE Superstar over the last four years to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship that wasn’t a Four Horsewoman or Ronda Rousey. One, I think that’s unbelievable and I’m so proud to have it be me, but also I hope that [trend] is something that can continue, you know, to have newer talents fight for these opportunities because we have such an incredible women’s roster. I want to defend my championship against anyone that wants to fight for it.”
She added, “I hope this can be the beginning of [WWE] light and that includes a lot of talent.”
Although Morgan’s ascension to the highest feels organic, a minimum of to her fans, a recent report from The Wrestling Observer noted that her current push could be a direct results of Sasha Banks and Naomi’s WWE walkout. Regardless, Morgan seems to own taken her chance as she is reportedly a high merchandise mover for WWE at live events, and continues to garner loud reactions on all the shows.
